The 146th Golf Open Comes Back to Royal Birkdale

With some of the greatest golfers coming together in close proximity to Liverpool, make sure you get your tickets to enjoy this remarkable display of golfing ingenuity at the 146th Open 2017.

The Oldest Championship in Golf

In 1860 eight men took to Prestwick St Nicholas golf course to determine who would be named the champion golfer among them. First prize was a belt fashioned from rich red Morrocan leather worth a whopping £25 pounds (over £500 to date), named the Challenge Belt.

Three rounds played over the challenging links course resulted in a win by Willie Park Senior beating his rival Old Tom Morris by just two shots. It was from here that the golf open became a tournament open to experienced players across the globe.

For over 150 years talented golfers have battled it out to be honoured the title “Champion Golfer of the Year” and the prize of the iconic Claret Jug.

The Claret Jug replaced the Challenge Belt in 1870 after the belt was won three times in a row by Young Tom Morris and was his for keeps.

In 1872 Morris won The Open again but the new trophy had not been ready in time to present it to him.Then in 1873 Morris’ winning streak was felled by Tom Kidd who was lucky enough to be the first player to receive the Claret Jug, Morris’ name was however engraved first upon the trophy.

Over last century and a half, the winners of The Open have entertained swarms of golf fans with riveting performances of skill and determination. This time honoured golfing competition continues to attract new comers to the sport of golf and bring crowds of spectators to 14 links courses dotted around Britain’s picturesque coastline each year.

The Open at Royal Birkdale

Situated north of Liverpool on the coast of Southport Royal Birkdale is a sweeping links course that has been carved out among towering sand dunes by three generations of golf course architects.

Royal Birkdale is recognised as the 18th best golf course in the world outside the USA, due to its excellent spectator vantage points and

The first Open Championship to be hosted in Royal Birkdale was in 1954 when winner Peter Thompson became the first Australian to lift the Claret Jug after his triumph. After this Thompson went on to win a further three Open Championships in a row.

A special moment in golf occurred at Royal Birkdale when Lee Trevino completed a hat-trick of victories in the space of only four weeks. Before he lifted the centenary Claret Jug in 1971, Trevino had also won the US Open and the Canadian Open.

Royal Birkdale has a reputation as being a challenging but fun course to play, set out over 6690 yards, with 18 holes and a 70 par. As with any other links course, the challenge can change with the weather, on a windy day anything of the fairway leaves a player in trouble.

This year Royal Birkdale will be hosting it’s 10th Open Championship, with 156 players heading to Southport and crowds of spectators too, the 146th Open is set to be a fabulous golfing event in 2017.

Thinking of attending The Open?

For a great family friendly day out there’s nothing like going to The Open.

If you are already a golf fan then great but The Open also looks after those who are new to the game. The biggest names in golf will be in attendance and you can catch a glimpse of your favourite player winding their way in between the dunes.

There are plenty of refreshment stalls selling delicious food and drinks as well as marvellous spectator spots where you can set up camp at any hole or tee to watch each player start or finish every hole.

Rooftop Slide from The Shankly Hotel to Raise Money for Homeless

This week, we announced our plans to go ahead with one of our most exciting projects: building a rooftop slide to raise money for the homeless.

At Signature Living, our charity partner is Liverpool’s leading homeless charity The Whitechapel Centre. And we’re aiming to raise £500,000 a year for the organisation.

Liverpool locals and tourists can look forward to an exhilarating tubular slide for public use, with money going to Whitechapel.

The exciting slide is expected to spiral down from The Shankly Hotel’s fantastic rooftop terrace, which regularly plays host to vibrant events in the city.

We’re planning for the tube to feature a clear roof to offer riders amazing views of Liverpool as they whoosh towards the ground.

The terrace itself showcases a sensational view across Liverpool, so we can only imagine the thrill of sliding down the city from the top.

This unique addition to the hotel is expected to be of a revised design, following our original plans for the project back in 2015.

The new design wraps three times around the pole, creating a more relaxed experience for riders as they take in an incredible view of Liverpool.

With a vast range of visitors to the Shankly and its Bastion Bar & Restaurant, we’re sure the slide will attract countless Liverpool locals as well as tourists.

There simply isn’t anything like this in Liverpool, so we have no doubt that it will prove a huge hit with both big kids and the little ones!

The Whitechapel Centre in Liverpool

We’re hugely proud to become more involved with The Whitechapel Centre, Liverpool’s leading homeless and housing charity.

Whitechapel does an array of amazing work for the city – the team offer a helping hand to rough sleepers, those who live in hostels and people struggling to manage accommodation.
